for die-hard fans of Virginia Madsen only
7 February 2008 | by (Zurich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This movie is available in Europe in a dubbed Italian version. Apparently it was made during the Cannes film festival of 1997, so there were a few stars at hand. Virginia Madsen actually gives a wonderful performance as a feisty American prostitute who is on the French Riviera for some mob business. Her brother Michael has a small part as a mobster. Virginia Madsen is teamed with Italian actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta who played the female lead in "Il postino". The two beautiful yet very different ladies would have made a formidable team had the script amounted to anything. Unfortunately the movie is extremely boring and does not amount to much. But all the scenes with Virginia Madsen are great. Character actors like Seymour Cassel and Harry Dean Stanton also have small parts, and there is another attractive woman who looks like Kate Jackson.
